Great Old Bible Stories Retreat - 6 Esther

Christ the Priest Media

Esther, beautiful queen and wife of Xerxes I, and her cousin Mordecai persuade the king to retract an order for the general annihilation of Jews throughout the Persian empire. It is said that through prayer, fasting, and God's intervention, that the Jewish people were saved. Esther herself is said to be a prefigurement of the Blessed Virgin Mary herself. Looking back at a number of old Testament figures we can learn lessons about problems we face in the modern world today in order to avoid making the same mistakes over again! In this sixth talk, Fr Gerard Ryan CCS takes us through the lessons of prayer, fasting, and intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This talk is the sixth part of a retreat series focused on the stories from the Bible given by Fr Gerard Ryan.
